Buying one of the new Nokia Windows Phone devices? Hold on.

Are you considering buying one of the new Nokia Windows Phone devices in the very near future? Well, holding off for now would be a better idea and you might just land yourself Nokia’s Mix Radio app for free.

One of the best Nokia apps yet is slow to come onto US markets. It will arrive with the new Nokia Lumina 800, to be introduced to US markets in early 2012. European customers who already have the new Windows platform phone are very enthusiastic about the new Nokia Music app that comes free with the new smart phone. If you love music you may want to hold off on purchasing that new phone.

The Nokia Music app features a player, of course, and works with Zune to play your favorite tunes but it also comes with Mix Radio which will stream music from prerecorded radio stations featuring over 15 million tracks of music in most genres. If you like what you’re hearing then you can tap the phone and save the song on your Lumia for playing offline. You can also buy music downloads in MP3s.

The Lumina 800 also has a feature similar to Pandora that allows you tell Mix Radio who your favorite bands are and it will create customized play lists for you. Mix Radio uses Eagles Nest Taste profiling to serve up your personalized music. You can also skip, rate or love songs.

Mix Radio is simple to use, just tap the home screen and music starts playing, no subscription, no paying downloading fees. It comes standard on the Lumina 800, no installation needed. (Mix Radio is also available on Lumina 710 phones.) It also has GIG- which will actually tell you when your favorite bands are playing in the area.

Nokia is promising that the Lumina 800 US version, which may be called Tango, will have very aggressive pricing and many insiders are speculating the price of the new Windows phone will be close to $200, making it affordable for most consumers. But unfortunately we’ll have to wait until 2012 to find out.

The Lumina 800 has a slim design, fits well in the pocket and hand, comes in 3 colors, and does all the things a smart phone is supposed to do as well as play music. It’s rated as the fastest Windows phone on the market by most reviewers and of course being a Nokia phone it goes a long way between charges. If grandpa has resisted getting a smart phone you can tell him it’s like having a transistor radio in the pocket that knows what music you like and lets you make phone calls too.

The Lumina 800 is flying off the shelves in Europe. The US version will have a larger screen, a slightly different processor and an 8 megapixel camera. The Mix Radio app is one of the apps that distinguish Nokia’s Windows phones from similar smart phones and it isn’t available as a stand alone app. I believe that once you see a friend’s Lumina 800 or Tango in use you’ll want one too, especially if you’re a music lover. That’s one of the reasons you may want to wait until after the holidays to purchase a new phone.

Nokia Lumia 900 developers-only promo leaks (exclusive video)

Following the warm welcoming of the Lumia 710 and Lumia 800 Nokia devices running on Microsoft’s Windows Phone Mango operating system, the companies are enthusiastically working on the third such phone to emerge from their banner called Lumia 900 aka Nokia Ace.

The device, though pretty much still under wraps, is rumored to follow in the footsteps of its predecessor, invariably sporting a 1.4 GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 16GB of flash memory and an 8 mega-pixel camera with the usual Carl Zeiss optics.

Also, design-wise, the Lumia 900 is expected to be thinner and larger than the Lumia 800, improvising from the latter’s 3.7inch screen to a 4.3inch touch display. Unfortunately, that’s all we know about the Lumia 900 at present. Perhaps this dev-only exclusive video churns out something..

Nokia Lumia 710 Windows Phone gets official, looks cute

As expected, Nokia followed the “first real Windows Phone” with the unveiling of a cute second, the Lumia 710, which is a lower-end device compared to the higher-end Lumia 800. Powered by the same 1.4GHz CPU found in the Lumia 800, the Lumia 710 sports a 3.7 inch ClearBlack display and comes in “stealthy black” and “crisp white,” with replaceable back covers. It is priced at around €270 ($375) and is expected to hit France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK in November and Hong Kong, India, Russia, Singapore and Taiwan before the close of 2011. Any additional markets can forget about it till the first part of 2012.

Press Release

Signals new dawn with the launch of Nokia Lumia 800 and Nokia Lumia 710, the first Nokia smartphones powered by Windows Phone

Introduces a range of stylish, smart mobile phones, superior Nokia Maps, partnership for co-branded accessories with Monster, and more

London, UK – At Nokia World, the company’s annual event for customers, partners and developers, Nokia demonstrated clear progress on its strategy by unveiling a bold portfolio of innovative phones, services and accessories, including the first smartphones in its Windows Phone-based Nokia Lumia range. The stunningly social Nokia Lumia 800 brings content to life with head-turning design, Nokia’s best social and Internet experience, familiar Nokia elements, such as leading imaging capabilities and new signature experiences. The colorful and affordable Nokia Lumia 710 is a no-nonsense smartphone that brings the Lumia experience to more people around the world.

Nokia also launched four new mobile phones which feature stylish design, a rich social experience and location-aware technology. The Nokia Asha 300, Nokia Asha 303, Nokia Asha 200 and Nokia Asha 201 blur the line between smartphones and feature phones, offering QWERTY and touch screen experiences, combined with fast and easy access to the Internet, integrated social networking, messaging and world-class applications from the Nokia Store.

“Eight months ago, we shared our new strategy and today we are demonstrating clear progress of this strategy in action. We’re driving innovation throughout our entire portfolio, from new smartphone experiences to ever smarter mobile phones,” said Stephen Elop, Nokia President and CEO. “From the Nokia Lumia 800 to the Nokia Asha 201, we are bringing compelling new products to the market faster than ever before. I’m incredibly proud of these new devices – and the people of Nokia who have made this happen.”

“Since Nokia’s major strategic shift only eight months ago, the company has found a new energy. It has provided substantial improvements to Symbian, managed to differentiate on Windows Phone and it continues to build on its strong portfolio in mobile phones,” says Pete Cunningham, Principal Analyst, Canalys. “Nokia is delivering on its pledges, and is clearly demonstrating its path to future success.”

The first Nokia Lumia smartphones
First two smartphones based on Windows Phone introduce a range of new experiences designed to make everyday moments more amazing.

Nokia Lumia 710
The purposely built, no-nonsense Nokia Lumia 710 can be personalized with exchangeable back covers and thousands of apps to bring the Lumia experience to more people around the world. The Nokia Lumia 710 is designed for instant social & image sharing, and the best browsing experience with IE9. It is available in black and white with black, white, cyan, fuchsia and yellow back covers. With the same 1.4 GHz processor, hardware acceleration and graphics processor as the Nokia Lumia 800, the Nokia Lumia 710 delivers high performance at an affordable price. The estimated retail price for the Nokia Lumia 710 will be approximately 270 EUR, excluding taxes and subsidies.

Both smartphones include signature Nokia experiences optimized for Windows Phone, including Nokia Drive, which delivers a full-fledged personal navigation device (PND) with free, turn-by-turn navigation and dedicated in-car-user-interface; and Nokia Music introducing MixRadio, a free, global, mobile music-streaming application that delivers hundreds of channels of locally-relevant music. In an update delivered later this year, Nokia Lumia users will also gain the ability to create personalized channels from a global catalogue of millions of tracks. Also integrated in Nokia Music is Gigfinder, providing the ability to search for live local music for a complete end-to-end music experience, as well as the ability to share discoveries on social networks and buy concert tickets also coming in the Nokia Music software update delivered later this year.

Completing the ultimate mobile audio offering, Nokia also introduced the on-ear Nokia Purity HD Stereo Headset by Monster and the in-ear Nokia Purity Stereo Headset by Monster, co-designed and co-developed by Monster, a recognized leader in high performance audio. Both products provide a fresh listening experience and are the first output of the exclusive long-term partnership between Nokia and Monster, intended to introduce a range of premium audio accessories to reflect the outstanding quality and bold style of the Lumia range.

The Nokia Lumia 710 is scheduled to be available first in Hong Kong, India, Russia, Singapore and Taiwan toward the end of the year alongside the Nokia Lumia 800, before becoming available in further markets in early 2012.

Nokia also announced its plans to introduce a portfolio of products into the US in early 2012 and into mainland China in the first half of 2012. In addition to the existing products, which include coverage for WCDMA and HSPA, Nokia also plans LTE and CDMA products to address specific local market requirements.
